Charles Hugh Smith authored an article entitled “ Democracy Is Now a Hindrance To The Imperial State.” You can find the full article at http://charleshughsmith.blogspot.com/2019/10/democracy-is-now-hindrance-to-imperial.html.

Here’s some excerpts of what he wrote:

  • We have a “counterfeit democracy which matches our counterfeit capitalism.” Comment: Our economic system is actually fascism, but people like to disguise it and call it capitalism as part of their blame game.  The very people who are complaining about our economic system are the very ones who created the problem in the first place.
  • “…Swapping which party controls Congress doesn’t really change the policies of the Imperial State….” Comment: The Imperial State is more appropriately called the “Deep State.”
  • “The corporate mass media is the PR machine for the Imperial State.” Comment: That’s why there is so much “fake news.”

We are a democracy in name only; everything is disguised, smoke and mirrors to the extreme.  As a result, the American public would never guess who runs our government, regardless of which party is in power and regardless of who might be president.  It’s a dirty little secret that you’re not supposed to know about…but, of course, now you know.

Greta Thunberg says that the science is settled. So, why doesn’t NASA and the World Meteorological Organization agree with her?

Headline: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Proposes Zero-Carbon Airplanes

Comment: Good luck with running planes on anything but fossil fuel, especially if we only have 12 years left.  A good first step, however, would be to eliminate private jets. Unfortunately, the climate alarmists will never allow it because the elites, and the climate alarmists themselves, would lose their favorite means of transportation. Going to Davos, anyone?

Headline: Greta Thunberg In Iowa City: U.N. Climate Action Summit A Failure

Thunberg said world leaders are uncomfortable standing behind the science.

Comment: Actually, world leaders are uncomfortable standing behind a hoax, even one propagated by the U. N. itself. The reason is that they can see that it will destroy their own country.

Headline: NASA Admits That Climate Change Occurs Because of Changes In Earth’s Solar Orbit, and Not Because of SUVs or Fossil Fuels

Comment: It’s called the Milankovitch Cycles, for anyone who wants to research it.

Headline: Global Warming: Britain Braces for Coldest Winter in 30 Years

Comment: Some meteorologists are saying that the 2019-2020 cold spell could be as severe as the winter of 1963, believed to have been the coldest in 200 years (dating back to the last mini ice-age).

Headline: Top Level Climate Modeler Criticizes Nonsense of Global Warming Crisis

Comment: One of the world’s top meteorologists is Dr. Mototaka Nakamura from Japan who earned his Doctor of Science from MIT. He’s come out against the theory of global warming and the climate crisis proclamations of Greta Thunberg and AOC.

Commentary:

Recently, over 500 scientists and climate professionals wrote a letter to the Secretary-General of the United Nations appealing for an open debate on climate change. This is what the letter said:

“Climate science should be less political, while climate policies should be more scientific. Scientists should openly address the uncertainties and exaggerations in their predictions of global warming, while politicians should dispassionately count the real benefits as well as the imagined costs of adaptation to global warming, and the real costs as well as the imagined benefits of mitigation. There is no statistical evidence that global warming is intensifying hurricanes, floods, droughts and suchlike natural disasters, or making them more frequent. There is no climate emergency. Therefore, there is no cause for panic and alarm. We strongly oppose the harmful and unrealistic net-zero CO2 policy proposed for 2050.”

And why does the U.N., itself, say that climate change has nothing to do with environmental science but rather is a solution to a political issue? And why do climate alarmists ignore what the U.N. has openly admitted themselves?

Quote of the day

“Creating an ideology pegged to carbon dioxide is a dangerous nonsense…The present alarm on climate change is an instrument of social control, a pretext for major businesses and political battle. It became an ideology, which is concerning.” – Delgado Domingos, environmental scientist

They brought it up and by now they are no doubt regretting it. As the saying goes: “Oh what tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.” Today’s headlines tell the story:

 

Headline: Obama Officials Including Ambassador Discuss Toppling Ukrainian Government and Replacing Officials With Biden’s Approval

Comment: Obama officials, but in particular the CIA. Who runs the CIA, anyway?

Headline: Oliver Stone Flick Exposes Barack Obama and Joe Biden’s Successful Coup in Ukraine

Comment: Filmmaker Oliver Stone made a documentary exposing the Ukraine scandal but the Police State (Deep State/Mockingbird Media) stonewalled him.

Headline: Audio, Email Evidence Shows DNC Colluded With Ukraine To Boost Hillary By Harming Trump

Comment: Yet, Hillary is still promoting the discredited Russia-collusion narrative.  

Headline: Intel Community IG Stonewalling Congress On Backdated Whistleblower Rule Changes

Comment: The CIA got caught with their hand in the cookie jar.  Can you spell C-O-U-P?

Headline: Barr: Intelligence Community Management Is Behind Whistleblower Saboteurs

Comment: In other words, the Deep State.

Commentary: And Joe Biden’s campaign is going up in Ukraine-related flames….so Hillary gets the mantle.

The New Politics

10/08/2019

Politics is an ever-changing exercise in chasing windmills. It’s all about obtaining and keeping power, a game of identifying whatever political positions can get a politician elected. Today’s headlines tell the story:

Headline: AOC Unveils Manifesto: A Just Society Means Rent Controls, Abolish Prisons and Welfare For Illegals

Comment: “Just” for who? AOC wants criminals and illegal aliens to have more rights than tax-paying citizens.

Headline: Hillary Cites Russia Conspiracy Theories In Case For Trump Impeachment

Comment: Is Hillary one of the few people who still don’t understand that Russia-collusion was a political ruse to interfere in the 2016 election on behalf of Hillary, herself?

Headline: Hillary Floats Putting Constitution In The Shredder

Comment:Plan B is to get rid of the 1st and 2nd Amendments.

Commentary: If you’re wondering why I’m covering Hillary Clinton now, it’s because she’s now the preferred presidential candidate of some Dem donors and supporters. Biden will drop out due to all the scandals and Warren isn’t electable. So, the top Dems realize that Hillary is they’re best shot. Unfortunately, Hillary isn’t electable either, so what to do? That’s where the idea of “President Pelosi” comes from. She’s third in line of succession to the office of president. That is, if something were to happen to both Trump and Pence, Pelosi would become President and then could give way to Clinton. You may think that sounds like too much like a conspiracy theory, but there is method/logic to the madness. After all, why is Trump calling up the Marines?

AOC ran on a campaign pledge to end the war in Syria and bring our troops home. Now she is critical of Trump’s decision to do exactly what she had previously said that she was going to do. She tweeted, “We can pursue a strategy to stop our endless wars without endangering the lives of innocent people.”  

She’s either incredibly naïve or she thinks that the voters are incredibly stupid, or perhaps both. I guess our own troops don’t count as being “innocent people.” Instead, let’s save the Kurds, who quite frankly aren’t worth saving, and sacrifice our troops!

Our politicians (of both parties) would like nothing better than endless wars. The situation in Syria is being used to encourage us to start a hot war with one of our close allies and commit this nation to another quagmire like Iraq or Afghanistan and perhaps wind up in WWIII. Almost no one in the media is speaking out against the endless wars and they attack anyone who does. That’s what I refer to as Tulsi Gabbard Effect.

The other day Hillary Clinton floated the idea of shredding the Constitution.  It made me think back to the following headline:

Headline: Ocasio-Cortez Falsely Says GOP Changed Constitution To Block FDR From Re-Election

Comment: She could have just misspoke (FDR died long before the 22ndAmendment became law) or she could have been alluding to the Democrats wanting to change the Constitution to keep Trump from being re-elected. In any event, it’s the states, themselves, that have to approve of any change to the Constitution.

Headline: Antifa Calls For “America Is Cancelled” Protest

Comment: It’s only a matter of time before an Antifa protest results in someone getting killed. Circle October 10th on your calendar.

Headline: First Amendment Group Urges Ocasio-Cortez To Unblock Twitter Users

Comment: Perhaps, she would if she actually supported the Constitution; but she won’t, so the judge says see you in court.

Headline: Beto Admits That He will Forcefully Confiscate Firearms If He’s Elected President

Comment: Beto, plus Sanders, Warren, Harris etal.

Headline: The New York Times Declares War On Free Speech

Comment: They’ll have to get in line behind the many universities who already don’t allow free speech.

 

Humor of the day

SNL did a parody of a right-wing poll showing that 121% of respondents said yes to impeaching Joe Biden. The skit was actually funny.  However, it was all the left-wing polls who got the 2016 presidential election so wrong. And that’s no joke.

There’s something going down in Syria and it has little to nothing to do with our military presence in that country. That’s because we had less than 100 troops in Syria. These troops were assisting the Free Syrian Army in Northern Syria and they could not have had a significant impact militarily on what was happening in that area. The removal of troops from that area simply keeps them out of harm’s way.

However, that didn’t stop Hillary Clinton from calling Trump out on his decision.  She tweeted, “Let us be clear: The president has sided with authoritarian leaders of Turkey and Russia over our loyal allies and America’s own interests. His decision is a sickening betrayal both of the Kurds and his oath of office.”

In an article in PJ Media, Tyler O’Neil wrote,”But to suggest that this policy decision involves an abandonment of Trump’s oath of office is beyond the pale. The president has the authority as commander in chief to order American troops as he will.”

In any event, let’s examine what Hillary said more closely: “The president has sided with authoritarian leaders of Turkey and Russia over our loyal allies and America’s own interests.” 

First of all, Hillary labels the leaders of Turkey and Russia as authoritarian leaders, as if we should never do business with such people.  However, as Secretary of State, Hillary was best buddies with both Erdogan and Putin. She even thanked Erdogan for invading Syria back in 2012. Besides, Hillary wasn’t on the call to Erdogan and she wasn’t on the call to Putin. She is commenting based on no intel and simply undermining our position internationally.

Secondly, the “loyal allies” that Hillary is referring to is the Kurds.  Well, historically the Kurds have not been allies of the U.S. although recently they did help us fight ISIS (because they had a personal stake in what was going on; that is, ISIS was also attacking the Kurds).

Thirdly, Hillary implies that it is in our countries own interests to be the policeman in Syria. Our adventures in places like Iraq, Afghanistan and Yemen should have sobered everyone up to the reality that we can’t impose our will on the people in that region. Certainly, Hillary’s misadventures in Libya should have an impact on how she views the world. In any event, the cost of American lives and the trillions of dollars spent should impact how we should deal with Syria. That is, the era of “endless wars” propagated by our politicians needs to end, because it is obviously not in America’s best interest.

Fourthly: Hillary should realize that our interests in the region include, first and foremost, the protection of our soldiers that we send there and put in harm’s way. However, that apparently is of no consequence to Hillary.  Just a reminder that Hillary believes in the motto, “What difference does it make?”

However, there’s a reason why Hillary, and others, are freaking out over this non-issue. What is in Northern Syria that is so valuable? What are we not being told? 

 

Epilogue

Foreign policy has been rarely brought up in the Democratic debates.  However, from their comments on the campaign trail almost all the candidates support this country’s military adventurism abroad – except for Tulsi Gabbard, that is.  When Trump originally announced our withdrawal from Syria last December, Gabbard had this to say, “The hysterical reaction to the decision to withdraw troops from Syria is astonishing & shows just how attached to war some are. Lindsey Graham & others want us to continue our regime change war in Syria and to go to war with Iran. That’s why they’re so upset.”  

And that’s been the plan all along…war with Iran which could quickly then escalate into WWIII.

 

“That is why the neocon/neolib warmongers will do anything to stop me.”       

     – Tulsi Gabbard

P.S. That’s why I call it the Tulsi Gabbard Effect.

So, sure, politicians lie a lot, like all the time.  However, some times their lies are just really obvious (and stupid).  I guess they just can’t help themselves.  Today’s headlines tell the story:

Headline: She Can’t Stop Lying: Liz Warren Claims That She’s the Daughter of a Janitor – But Her Dad’s Death Certificate Lists Him As Flight Instructor For U.S. Army

Comment: Pocahontas strikes again. 

Headline: Elizabeth Warren 2007 Video Contradicts Campaign Tale of Losing Job For Being Pregnant

Comment: Between her radical socialist views and her lack of credibility, Warren may find herself on the outside looking in for the Democratic presidential nomination. Besides, she can’t beat Trump.

Afterthought: Can you spell H-I-L-L-A-R-Y?

Headline: Morning Joe: Schiff In Some Trouble For Not Telling Us Truth About Whistleblower

Comment: Even people on the left are complaining about Schiff.

Headline: Liberal Michael Moore Labels Joe Biden “This Year’s Hillary”

Comment: Poor Joe, his donors are in full-out panic mode and he just can’t stop lying (about the Ukraine). No doubt, he’ll probably be withdrawing soon from the race.

Civil War II

10/07/2019

America has not had a civil war in over 150 years. Get ready, the next one appears to be looming dead ahead. Here’s all the moves and countermoves:

September 24, 2019 – Nancy Pelosi announces impeachment inquiry. There actually is no official impeachment inquiry as the House has not taken a vote (and there apparently will not be one either). Despite what is said publicly, there will probably be no subpoenas because subpoenas would be fought in court. So, this is simply a way of investigating without going through a legal process.

September 26, 2019 – Ukraine whistleblower’s report made public.

September 26, 2019. – Trump says, “We’re at war.” However, unbeknownst to most people, the country has been in an official state of war ever since 9/11. This is related to what Sen. Lindsey Graham asked Judge Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearing to the Supreme Court. The line of questioning had to do with American citizens being tried by military tribunals during a period of armed conflict.

September 29, 2019 – Pastor Robert Jeffress states that if Trump is removed from office, civil war will ensue.

October 1, 2109 – Mark Milley becomes Chairman of The Joint Chiefs of Staff.

October 1, 2019 – Maxine Waters says that Trump should be arrested and placed in solitary confinement.

October 1, 2019 – Rashida Tlaib says that Democrats are looking into how to arrest Trump officials.

October 2, 2019 – The New York Times promises that if Trump is reelected there will be a socialist revolution.

October 5, 2019 – MSNBC presents the Democratic strategy on one of their news telecasts: Impeach both Trump and Pence so that Pelosi can become President. Objective: So that the “proper party” can be in power. Remember, “President Pelosi” trended on Twitter way back on January 18, 2019. No telling, then, how long this has been in the works.

October 6, 2019 – Second whistleblower claim.

October 6, 2019 – Trump calls up the Marines.

Obviously, much more to follow.

 

 

 

The government used to arrest whistleblowers (e.g. Edward Snowden and Julian Assange). Now they encourage them to lie and file false reports. Today’s headlines highlight the fact that it’s a mixed up world:

Headline: News Breaks That The Whistleblower Worked For a Current 2020 Democratic Presidential Candidate

Comment: What did you expect, anyway?

Headline: Anti-Trump CIA Whistleblower Concealed Huddle With Schiff Committee

Comment: So, he lied. Don’t they all lie?

Headline: Morning Joe: Schiff In Some Trouble For Not Telling Us Truth About Whistleblower

Comment: Yeah, Schiff lied too (because it’s not allowed for the whistleblower to have met with Schiff).

Headline: Impeachment Whistleblower Asked Ukraine To Dig Up Dirt on Trump

Comment: So, what we have here is a whistleblower who complained about Trump digging up dirt in the Ukraine when the whistleblower, himself, did the very same thing (which ultimately became the Russia-collusion narrative).

Headline: Whistleblower Did Not Inform ICIG About Contacts With Schiff

Comment: According to whistleblower rules, you have to disclose this type of activity or you will be guilty of perjury. It’s quite possible then that a crime has been committed.
